Miami-Dade County Property Appraiser Releases July 1st Preliminary Certification of Taxable Values and Reminds Property Owners to take Advantage of New Policies To Avoid Appeals

Property Appraiser Carlos Lopez-Cantera has released the July 1st Preliminary Certification of taxable values to taxing authorities across Miami-Dade County. The countywide taxable value for 2013 is $197,133,835,984, a 3.39% increase from 2012. Today’s release of values does not detail individual assessments.

The July 1st Preliminary Certification of taxable values allows the taxing authorities, such as county government, municipal governments, the school board and Children's Trust, to begin the preparation of their 2013-2014 budgets and adopt proposed millage rates.

Individual assessments are available at the Property Appraiser’s website. Property owners are encouraged to look up their 2013 assessment online and contact the Property Appraiser’s Office if they have any concerns or questions. If a property owner believes their property is over assessed, a new individual assessment review process is now available to property owners as well as an informal assessment review form that can be accessed online. By using these procedures, property owners will be able to avoid a lengthy appeal process with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB) that can take more than a year to finalize. Property owners will also receive the Notice of Proposed Taxes (TRIM Notice), providing detailed tax information that will be mailed August 23rd.
